At last week’s meeting, the City Council introduced an ordinance allowing speed cameras in residential neighborhoods.
In 2010, the Mayor and Council adopted a speed monitoring system for use in school zones and within ½ mile of the University of Maryland as authorized by §21-809 of the Transportation Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
In the 2021 legislative session, §21-809 was amended to allow Prince George’s County municipalities the ability to locate speed cameras on highways in residential districts with a maximum posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour. Ordinance 21-O-11 would include this option in the City Code.
You can see more about the ordinance here on City’s website.
The Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed ordinance at next Tuesday’s City Council regular meeting.
